The idea is simple: In completely darkened rooms blind people lead small groups of guests through an exhibition in which everyday situations are experienced altogether differently, without eyesight. In the dark, the daily routine becomes a new experience. A reversion of roles is created: sighted people are confronted with different ways of perception; blind people provide them with security and a sense of orientation transmitting a world without pictures.In addition to the exhibition, we still offer the Dinner in the Dark, Seminars & Trainings in the dark, Brunch in Silence and other great events.The response is remarkable: Since 1988 "Dialog im Dunkeln" was presented in more than 30 countries and over 130 cities worldwide and it has reached up to 8 million visitors.

Although we always knew that we were in a safe environment and that our guide would save us from harm, there was a constant realization that it would be terrifying to be blind. Indeed, I am quite sure that I would never cross the street....More

This really was something special. You experience a day in the life of someone with a visual impairment and it is actually quite emotional. I have never seen anywhere else where you can get this kind of experience. I would highly recommend as it will...More

You feel like a blind person for one hour in this place, where they give you a stick to navigate and a guide to go through. It is quite intense, since you really see nothing. You are not allowed to take your phone or any...More

What a fantastic experience. Like all our party the apprehension of giving yourself to the dark was quickly put at ease by lovely, friendly, clear advice. It was simply wonderful. And we couldn't believe it lasted so long. I won't ruin the experience by saying...More

Wow - what a fantastic idea and great implementation of it. Blind people giving you a small sniff into their world is both impressive and humbling. If you can, make sure to take the time to have a drink at the bar!

I will never look at a blind person the same way after spending 90 minutes trying to find my way through a park, crossing a busy street, figuring out a Kitchen and ordering a drink. Time well spent!

There are English speaking guides and when you book you can ask for one. You can book by going to the place in person, I didn't have much luck with the website or by phone. If possible ask for a tour that is only in English... More
